MIDDLEBURY — For Middlebury College senior Jenny Djupedal, the dying process has always been a bit of a mystery.

“My grandma passed away when  I was still in high school and she was on hospice when she died,” Djupedal said. “That was a really scary experience for me because I had never seen anybody die before.”

Djupedal is one of few young 20-somethings who has experienced death, and hospice, first-hand.

Their MiddCORE course isn’t targeted for those students who are hoping to get out on the ski slopes often during the one-class J-term semester. Instead, they spend at least eight hours each weekday learning about business and entrepreneurship with guest speakers and competitive challenges.

Middlebury selectmen back marketing post

Posted on January 13, 2011 |
By John S. McCright



MIDDLEBURY — The Middlebury selectboard on Tuesday endorsed the concept of providing $25,000 in town money to pay a portion of the cost of a new local events marketing coordinator who would draw out-of-towners to spend money downtown and in other local businesses that serve visitors.

The goal of coordinator would be to produce more in town revenue through increased rooms and meals tax collections than the cost of the position.

“We look forward to this being not an expenditure but an investment,” said selectboard chair John Tenny.
